Small Life Form started in 1998 as an experiment towards sound
manipulation & attempts to recreate the styles of Gyorgy Ligeti &
George Crumb. Starting off as a computer oriented manipulation
in sound, 2003 marked a change from sounds created in a box to
creating the sounds in the real air using effect pedals, microphones,
& predominantly horns & organs for the debut album One.
2007 marked Small Life Form’s live debut & over the next year
the style refined, abandoning real horns for a piece of copper
pipe, replacing organs with melodica, & vocals with feedback
manipulation. Alive is collected from two live recordings in 2008.
They are massive structures built from scratch using a loop pedal,
distortion pedals, & reverb units.
Sit back & relax whether you think Small Life Form is the
soundtrack to a world tearing apart or one that’s just forming.
Menacing & soothing enough to hold you over for a full album in
